Santa Teresa attracts yoga enthusiasts, adventurists, eco tourists and foodies to its eclectic mix of culture and cuisine. But perhaps its biggest draw is for those who appreciate the constant pounding of the surf on its pristine beaches. This is one of the features that makes Batik Villas a perfect spot for beach enthusiasts because waves right in front are some of the most consistent that Costa Rica has to offer.
Santa Teresa is located on Southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. When surfers refer to ‘the waves in Santa Teresa’ they are generally referring to Santa Teresa and its surrounding beaches. This would include Mal Pais, Playa Carmen, Santa Teresa and Playa Hermosa. Some might even say that this includes Cedros, on the other side of the peninsula near Montezuma, and Manzanillo, which is just North of Playa Hermosa. This collection of beaches attracts waves form nearly every direction giving them a variety of different surfaces to break on.
Playa Hermosa is a special gem among the other beaches in the area. It is a long sand beach located at the northern end of Santa Teresa surrounded by rock croppings that guide the waves into a sand bottom beach break. The beach has become notorious for beginners as the long sand bottom and long rolling waves have made it a popular destination for the surf schools in the area. That is not to say that the waves are not great for intermediate and advance surfers as well, the outside waves offer a variety of peaks with punchy sections.
